Forget Peak Oil and Oil for Euros... This is more serious

Here's a story that's just starting to develop. Apparently Valerie Plame was deeply involved in monitoring Iran's involvement in the acquisition of uranium, and that her illegal outing by Vice President Dick Cheney's office in 2003 has seriously compromised our intelligence on the current issues surrounding Iran's controversial nuclear power program.

So imagine, for a moment, how the Plame Affair could ultimately lead (due to now-compromised intelligence) to an increasingly likey war by the US and Israel against Iran, with the definite possiblility of the use of nuclear bombs. I don't give a rat's ass if Cheney shot a fellow Republican in the face while shooting caged birds, but I do care that his attempt to discredit Joe Wilson by destroying his (Wilson's) wife's career could possibly lead to a nuclear holocaust in the Mideast. Why doesn't the press care? Why don't our Democrat Party leaders care? Why don't you care?

Let's just go back to our couches and watch the Olympics and American Idol, and forget about the continuing unraveling of our civilization. At least that's more pleasant than putting our heads back into the sand, no?
